The Ladies’ Group at St Gregory’s Parish in Preston spent an evening sampling food from Bangladesh and Kenya as they enjoyed an Emmaus Meal together. They listened to Sabita’s story from Bangladesh and heard about Emily’s situation in Kenya – and reflected on the challenges these ladies face in their daily struggle to provide food for their families.
Local Tandoori Restaurant, Shahzaad’s in Preston, generously supported the event by opening up their kitchens to CAFOD staff. Under the watchful and expert eye of the resident chef, Patrick prepared a tasty potato curry and chapatis for the ladies. Part of the evening involved sampling the local dishes from Bangladesh and Kenya.
The discussion was fruitful and the empathy felt from our Preston ladies for those in Bangladesh and Kenya was clearly strong!
Thank you ladies of St Gregory’s Preston for the warmth of your response and support.
